Pilgrimgirl is hosting this edition of the Disability Blog Carnival.
"As people with disabilities many of us find ourselves navigating borders. We may encounter physical barriers that prevent us from fully participating in social activities. Many of us experience awkward interactions as we move through public spaces--often simultaneously drawing attention and disfavor. Those of us who inhabit the Borderland of disability may 'pass' for TAB in various spheres (such as on the 'Net where our bodies aren't on display), or we may have times where we assert our disabled identity in order to qualify for benefits or accommodations. At different times we may feel a kind of fractured identity as we realize that our life is 'normal' for us, so why are we marginalized or pitied when we attempt to live our everyday lives?"
Pilgrimgirl is new to us as are some of her carnival participants. So many blogs; so little time! These carnivals provide such a wonderful opportunity to *meet* the most interesting people. Don't you think?
Steve and I will be hosting the next Disability Carnival on June 28 and we've decided to borrow from the Reader's Digest
and use "Laughter, the Best Medicine" as the theme this time around.
Of course, we welcome any and all topics but as we're planning a big move
to Iowa this summer, we're looking for any opportunity to lighten the
mood up around here! Help us please! Send us your submission(s) via this link or write to us at email@example.com Click HERE for more info.
